  1. aGenomic region is an independent genomic region (> 250 kb apart) that harbours at least one migraine risk SNP; bIndex SNP is the SNP with the lowest p-value at a genomic region. cSecondary SNP is a genome-wide significant SNP that is not in linkage disequilibrium with the index SNP. Associations were identified for the migraine without aura subtype. DEPICT, data-driven expression-prioritized integration for complex traits; g:GOSt tool refers to web-based gene functional profiling software g:Profiler128 ( (depicted are only the more prominent pathways vascular function, metal ion homeostasis, ion channel activity pathways) (Compiled and adapted from [17, 33])
